Question Intel Flash series 2+ card not recognized on Toshiba 4080XCDT

Hi!

I have toshiba 4080XCDT running redhat 6.1 with kernel 2.2.6 and pcmcia-cs version 3.1.14.

I also have this pesky flash card which is not recognized. The same card is recognized on a different laptop with same version of pcmcia-cs as a 20Mb series 2+ card (although it says 16Mb on the card).

The card also is recognized by windows 98 on the same laptop as MTD-A089 (???).

This is a 5v card, however on Toshiba cardctl config says:

Socket 0:
  Vcc 5.0V  Vpp1 0.0V  Vpp2 0.0V
  interface type is "memory and I/O"
  irq 5 [exclusive] [level]
  function 0:
    config base 0x0400
      option 0x60 status 0x00 copy 0x00
    io 0x0300-0x031f [auto]
Socket 1:
  Vcc 3.3V  Vpp1 3.3V  Vpp2 3.3V
  memory 0x1000-0x1fff @ 0x000e1000 [16bit]

Where the card is in socket 1.

I have tried many things: booting with the card, booting from windows into linux, inserting the card after boot, but nothing helps. I suspect the problem is that it gets the voltage wrong. Any way to force it to 5v?

Thanks for any help!

Intel series 2+ flash cards should be dual voltage (capable of
operation at either 3.3V or 5V).  What does "cardctl config" report on
the system where the card works correctly?

Can you read the card successfully?

Can you send me a more complete message log on the problem system?
I'm not that familiar with Toshiba laptop lines; how old a box is
this?  There are still unresolved (maybe unresolvable) issues with the
Linux PCMCIA drivers on Toshiba laptops, and while your problem isn't
one I've heard of before, my options are limited because I don't have
adequate specs on the Toshiba bridge chips.

In your BIOS setup menu, there should be an option for configuring the
PCMCIA bridge mode.  You can try flipping that around; there should be
three options: PCIC mode, Auto, and CardBus/16-bit.
